but we don't talk about it because cbo didn't mention it in the score. that's the great trick of paul ryan to recognize if you only talk about budget deficit, where does your budget put the deficit 20, 30 years from now, the amount of things you sneak in under that cloak that you can never put into the conversation in a serious way in normal times is tremendous. that's the central political innovation of his career. >> the favorite thing in the accounting discussion is compare the government to a family, saying you couldn't -- well, families do run debt, they cannot afford to buy their houses for cash, so they have a thing called a mortgage, which is the national debt of the family in effect. they try to oversimplify everything in this, but is there some break through in this point of republicans saying you know what, the debt isn't such a serious problem? >> there's no break through. i think it is a big deal that john boehner and others can't uphold this that the debt crisis is coming now or soon. if you go through what he said further, he said it is looming and coming. this is alway

. does it divide the party? and where do they wind up? >> i can imagine there's a republican rand paul that would be for gay marriage before 2016, but not many mainstream republicans coming out. i think we're still a few years away from that. it's demographic. a lot of old folks in the republican party that comprise the worker bee base of the gop,thy do the phone calls, they do the envelopes. they are culturally very conservative. very traditional and they're not going to come around to gay marriage at least not in the very near future it may happen down the road, i think you're going to find serious puckbash among the conservative base of the party. who by the way provide a lot of votes to republicans. on this issue. keep in mind, a lot of republicans vote for the party because of the cultural issues, not the fiscal issues. it's not because of carried interest and capital gains tax breaks they vote for the gop. >> carried interest. >> now we get to talk about carried interest. >> jonathan makes a good point. nbc/"wall street journal" poll, i believe in december 2012, they asked do you

. then there's senator rand paul from kentucky. today, he spoke in washington, d.c. and on his way there, he apparently stopped off at the hispanic voter stereotype shop. >> republicans have been losing both respect and votes of a group of people who already identify with many of our beliefs and family and faith and conservative values. hispanics should be a sizable part of the republican base, that should resognate with latinos. >> should they? why do you think that? you know, if you actually look at the data, more than half of all hispanics think gay people should be allowed to marry, so your stereo types what about what latino voters think, hey, turns out they're wrong. also, they're stereotypes. also, there's this. >> there's a hilarious episode on seinfeld, any seinfeld fans? where jerry admits he loves asian women, but says is it racist to like a certain race? >> don't, don't, don't. >> so, it is with trepidation that i'd like to express my admission for the romance of the culture. >> back to the drawing board, reince priebus. no, no, no, no, no. steve kornacki joins us next.

. for example, parroting the line that paul ryan is killing grandma, or falling for the nonsense that sequestration is going to lead to bedlam at the airport. or eventually mr. ed on the dinner plate. this is scary stuff but it's wrong. remember what is really going on here, my friends. if we only use a little map here and we in the media did our jobs here. no one is cutting anything. this still leads us with criminals more in debt a decade from now. it's true. the government is still growing no, matter what we do now. you don't hear that, of course, because it's not flashy or exciting or bloody. it doesn't sound exciting that paul ryan is slowing the pace of government. but paul ryan forcing millions to go on food stamps or pushing granny off a cliff -- i just heard this one. he is actually killing thousands of seniors. that is wrong. so i know. that the club. there is nothing wrong with having a point of view but everything wrong not bringing up all the point of view. it takes two parties to tango. so you can't just blame one. or one side is stubborn or jeopardizes a deal but t

. >> for years, right has stood in opposition to immigration reform. but now even tea party senator rand paul supports a path to citizenship. and gop opposition to immigration reform is falling away. yes, we're still facing a tougher fight on things like gun control. but the president's progressive agenda is already taking shape and even the gop's getting on board. joining me now is angela and abby huntsman. thank you both for coming on this show. >> thank you, rev. >> angie, why are we seeing a shift on these issues? >> well, it's political expediency as the country continues to shift demographically, as the country continues to evolve like the president, you're going to continue to see a change in the gop's politics. they can't afford to be as conservative and right leaning as they once were. >> abby, your dad took grief for taking some positions. now i see rand paul defending his stance on immigration, of all places, fox news. take a listen. >> people like coulter and limbaugh say that you are being suckered. >> what we have now is de-facto amnesty. here's another news flash. we haven't be
much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the senate, but three senators voting against it, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee. that's a new thing, tea partiers saying i'm even more conservative than paul ryan. is that the message? >> yeah. that is t
announcement. this is significant. expected soon on the immigration debate. we're awaiting senator rand paul on the stage any moment now at the hispanic chamber of commerce. wait until you hear his headline. good morning, everybody, senator john cornyn from texas. we're live here at "america's newsroom." we have a busy day. martha: good morning, bill. i'm martha maccallum. senator rand paul throws his support behind a path for citizenship for the 11 million so illegal immigrants in america. >> we're trying to add teeth to the bipartisan plan. we want to make sure border security is in there. as conservatives we always worry, you will give them legal status and say we give border security later, it never comes like so many liberal promises. what we're asking for is, every year we get to vote on whether the border is becoming more secure. all immigration reform is dependent on those votes. congress gets to vote. not the administration report. congress gets to vote whether or not the border is secure. bill: that is one senator who is making headlines for a couple weeks now. kelly wright live in
from what we saw earlier. it reminds me an awful lot of john paul ii. people do much the same thing. >> can we listen in here a little bit? i think this is the second reading, now in spanish. >> translator: the promise of inheriting the world was not made to abraham and his descendants on account of any law. but on account of the righteousness which consists in faith. that is why what fulfills the promise depends on faith, so that it may be a free gift and be available to all of abraham's descendants. not only those who belong to the law. but also those who belong to the faith of abraham, who is the father of all of us. as scripture says, i have made you the ancestor of many nations. abraham is our father in the eyes of god. in whom he put his faith and who brings the dead to life and calls into being what does not exist. though it seemed abraham's hope could not be fulfilled, he hoped and he believed. and through doing so, he did become the father of many nations, exactly as he had been promised. your descendants will be as many as the stars. this is the faith that was considered a
'm going to talk about rand paul with you for a moment. yesterday at the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce, let's listen to that. >> we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. >> if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> now, there is one word that's an omission there. he does not mention the word citizenship. do you think he's parsing and picking his words wisely so not to put off conservatives? >> well, i think that rand paul has done a wonderful job of doing just that, alex. being nuanced in whether he's talking about drones, tax reform -- he's always been very nuanced to make sure he has -- and people starting to realize a wider vision for his own political career and that's exactly why he didn't mention specifically pathway to citizenship. what's interesting, though, prior to that a.p. story i can share with you that the chatter was he was going to talk about pathway to citizenship. so i might -- you know, the big question is, did he back away from that after he heard the chatter and heard that individuals were not welcoming it in the

% of the vote. here's your first morning's dish of scrambled politics. republican senator rand paul talked about immigration reform to hispanic business leaders saying immigrants are an asset to america, but he didn't get very specific about his solutions. >> i think the conversation needs to start by acknowledging that we aren't going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we will find a place for you. >> when the senate votes on the democratic budget resolution this week, there may be a number of amendments voted on. vote a rama may include democratic amendments on the environment or republicans trying to substitute the house budget plan. >> and cool under pressure tuesday during his state of the city address when a man rushed onto the stage, threw down a flag and started yelling. security wrestled him to the ground. the mayor said it happened so fast he didn't have time to be scared. >> and the trip to israel has released this official trailer. let's take a look. >> we welcome president obama to israel. >> the bonds between the united states and
. some republicans are hoping the president is sincere. congressman paul ryan expressed doubts over the president's recent comments that america is not in a debt crisis. ryan contends america is very close to a debt crisis. >> you know who gets hurt the worst is the elderly. pro he can nom poik policy to get people working to bring in more revenue and get the entitlement system under control so people can plan for what the government promised them. let's prevent that crisis from happening. we know it's coming. this budget does that. >> some are against ryan's budget particularly those in the democrat party. it they are posing dramatically different plans for the budget. our hope is they can find compromise. the priority for both is to put americans back to work and establish strong economic growth. >> we need put americans back to, would and strong economy. a second priority one coupled with economic growth. i think we can do both. make sure we have deficit reduction but don't cut too much too fast. >> dick durbin also optimistic they can move forward. as congress grapples with deve
it was during the goldwater days. you're laying the groundwork for somebody like rand paul to win the iowa caucus us. chairman priebus made all the right recommendations. i would have gone further and said challenge your electorate. challenge your base. open up those primaries to independents. then you'll get republican candidates incentive to run to the center instead of to the right of rand paul. if those candidates win out you'll see democrats do very well in the midterms and four years. >> real quick guys, element number four of the cpac straw poll it puts rand paul in at 25%. marco rubio at 23%. so we have a leader there. our power panel, perry bacon, ben labolt, susan del percio. thank you. >>> university of central florida's main campus in orlando will reopen and classes will resume at noon eastern time. the campus was shut down, hundreds of students were evacuated after a body, weapons and explosives were found in a dorm room. authorities say the male found in this room appears to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. a handgun and explosive devices were found in that room
. >> even with the tea party and i come from a state that elected ron johnson, paul ryan, scott walker. i don't think anybody believes that having 23 debates makes a lot of sense. >> greta: do you think that-- you don't think the rand pauls or some the tea party candidates want more debates? >> i think that there can be a reasonable amount, greta, to get this right. i think if you have half that amount, if you have 12 debates. >> greta: that's enough. >> in 1980 there were six debates. in 1984 there were seven debates. now we have 22 debates of candidates slicing and dicing each other, in front of, in many cases, media personalities that are not in the business of promoting our candidates or the issues, they're in the business of creating news at the expense of our candidates. we need to be involved in who is doing the debates. who the moderators are. how many there are and i'm not talking about going down to two debates. i'm talking about a dozen debates. that's a lot of debates. >> greta: what about you and former rnc chair, steele? >> there is no exchange of words. i've not addressed i

on monday that endorsed comprehensive immigration reform and on tuesday rand paul of kentucky gave a speech to the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce in which he sold his proposal for immigration reform by insisting that latinos are natural republicans. >> republicans have been losing both the respect and votes of a group of people who already identify with people of our beliefs, family, and conservative values. hispanics should be a natural and sizable part of the republican base. but they are steadily drifting away from the gop in each election. this says more about republicans than i want does about hispanics. defense of the unborn, defense of traditional marriage are republican issues that should resonate with latinos but have been obscured by the perception that republicans are hostile to immigrants. >>> so the rand paul calculation there is interesting because i think everybody thinks about rand paul as a possible 2016 candidate. there's this question was he seeing an opportunity get to the right of where the establishment is because that's where the space is much as mitt romney got to

. congressman paul ryan says his budget would balance without raising taxes. senators will vote on both proposals tomorrow. here is a key senate republican on democrat murray's budget proposal. >> significant time that our colleagues have produced a budget, i'm glad they have. but it is a disappointment in the sense that it, in no way, alters the debt course we are on. they claim it is balanced. they have said balanced over 50 times already in this debate. and, yet, that budget does anything but balance. >> i should note the house passed paul ryan's plan today with all republican votes. zero democrats voting for it, shep. >> they didn't wait in the very last second of the very last day. what in the world was wrong with them? >> that's right. they pass the house passed a senate continuing resolution or cr as it is known. the house democratic leader nancy pelosi says it wasn't perfect, but it was important. >> the first vote on the cr was about substance. the second vote on the cr was about keeping government open. we want to remove all doubt that whatever our disagreement on some of thes
the argument for invading in the first place, that was also advanced this week by paul wolfowits' old boss, donald rumsfeld. he tweeted on the morning of the anniversary, quote, ten years ago began the long, difficult work of liberating iraqis, all who played a role in history, deserve our respect and appreciation. yes, remember that war of iraqi liberation that we were asked to sign up for as a country? you don't remember that? it's because that's not what they sold us. that's not what they told us that war was for. they're retroactively defining it that way. this is richard pearl, one of the neo cons pushing the discredited evidence of weapons of mass destruction and nuclear and biological weapons plans. he reemerged to share this bit of self-reflection. >> ten years later, nearly 5,000 american troops dead, thousands more with wounds, hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or wounded. even though it has been ten years since the war was sold to the american public, the folks who did the selling, you know what, they did it all on tape, and the tape still exists. and now the people involved

are fine. the idea is america to folks like rand paul who said we need a brand new political party. a new gop. the thing is this debate will be happening over the next couple years and we won't find out where the republican party is for a while. democrats were just in this position after losing the 2004 election. they had very big debates, particularly over the iraq war in 2005, 2006. then everything was settled. we'll see where republicans are come 2015 and 2016. >> mark murray, good to see you. let's bring in radio talk show host michael smerconish who is also with msnbc and jonathan from american cross roads. thank you for being with me. jonathan, let me start with you. this is what rnc chair reince priebus said. >> focus groups describe our party as narrow minded, out of touch and, quote, stuffy old men. the perception that we're the party of the rich, unfortunately continues to grow. that's frustrating. because we care about every voter. >> what does this plan do? what does plan do to change those perceptions at least? >> i think it is a very, very good start. a very good framework o

matt just articulated becoming more popular with rand paul, his filibuster and not totally isolationist but basically the idea that the u.s. can get involved everywhere they might want to. i think obama sees that. i think that is the direction politics is shifting after ten years of war. and, yeah. i think that is going to be the reality a lot of politicians come to grips with matt, what's the headline going to be? >> you know, obama tries to make connection with young people. >> succeeds? >> maybe. we can be hopeful. right? >> yeah. of course. we'll be watching closely along with matt welch. thanks, guys. good to see you here in our fancy new set with the map and everything. we also want to tell you about some developing news out of nevada. just happened this morning. seven marines killed. at least seven wounded during a live fire exercise at the army's hawthorne depot in nevada. nbc's jim miklaszewski is at the pentagon for us. mick, what can you tell us? >> reporter: chris, u.s. military officials tell nbc news that seven marines were killed and at least seven others wounded in an ex
to speed on american. senator rand paul. >> i think the legislature is about ten years behind the public. i've introduced amendments to quit sending money t and build bridges here in the united states rather than in egypt. 90% of the people agree with me 80% of my senate disagree with me. bill: do you agree with rand paul on that? >> it's a little more complicated than that. he is correct that the senate is not as responsive to the will of the american people as it should be. for example it continues to spend too much, another point that senator paul has made. on the other hand people in political office need to be leaders as well and they need to explain why, for example, we send military assistance to egypt. we want the egyptian military to you supportive of u.s. policy. when they buy american equipment, when they receive our help they tend to be more supportive of our position. the egypt leader is trying to play both side. if the united states withdrew awful its assistance i'm not sure he wouldn't flip over to the wrong side. it's more complicated than saying we shouldn't send aid to cou

, rand paul just yesterday called for comprehensive change before a crowd of hispanic business leaders. but he never used the word citizenship and says a secure border has to come first. behind the scenes right now, some senators are working on provisions for a path to citizenship. what does it all mean? joining me to talk about what that path could look like, nbc latino contributor raul reyes. it's good to see you. >> good morning. >> can we talk about rand paul first? because immediately his office pushes back on the whole idea of citizenship. but did you hear something that suggested to you that he's having a change of heart? that could, in fact, be influential with other conservatives? >> yes, absolutely. and i think, i would venture to say that maybe we've reached a tipping point. in broad strokes, it's complicated. you know, he -- first he says he's in favor of path to citizenship but doesn't want to use the words, but he is speaking about it. but that in itself, that is tremendous because look at who he is, you know, he won the cpac poll, he's a likely 2016 candidate. he represe
of taxpayer money in st. paul. this was unprecedented. it had been set for additional this nominee has been expressed as not having been candid in his testimony. candid is it kind of one of the funny words in politics that means he didn't tell the whole truth. this is also somebody who refused to do his fundamental job which is to fully prosecute voter intimidation that fell under his watch. these are just some of the areas of concern that i think that senators have and they need to ask questions and get answers and i don't think they're going to like the answers, particularly as to his lack of candor. >> there was a case that was going to go up for the u.s. supreme court, that challenged the theory of discrimination na mr. perez apparently believes in. that talks about how, it's basically whether you can proof racial discrimination by looking at statistics, rather than intent of specific cases and that was about to head to the supreme court. apparently mr. perez didn't like the chances of that theory being upheld by the supreme court, so he steps in on the case and tries to convince the ci

strategists richard vigory and paul warrick both of whom are catholic, recruited jerry falwell in a pro-family agenda. he said abortion ought to be the keystone of their organizing strategy, since this was the issue that could divide the democratic party. >> well, as long as abortion was the big social issue, the republicans could get away with the supreme court was protecting them. you had, you weren't going to be able to ban abortion because of the supreme court. so it was safe to have a party position against abortion. this is different. and the task of keeping that evangelical component of the republican party from wandering off, is a lot more challenging. this is just an excruciating problem for the republicans. but i think they can probably thread the needle by talking about how it should be left for the states or i personally don't like gay marriage, but i think -- they're going to struggle. >> it does, as chad points out, it brings to the fore what is conservatism, right? i mean there's a lot of argument about the government needs to stay out of my back yard and the party in ter
, but it was really hidden. and paul fari's piece is really good, but there was a line that said the press wasn't a success, but it wasn't a failure either. it made me think about kids' t-ball games where nobody's a loser, everybody's a winner. and there's a lot of revisionism that goes on there. where a lot of reporters did their jobs, and that's true and great. but the most damning thing in that entire piece is the great walter pinkus wrote a lot of critical things for "the washington post," was a skeptic of the war. and he averaged, i think, page a-18 for his wonderful coverage. while, as you said, all the whiz bang, golly gee, patriotic, rah-rah stuff was on the front page of both "the washington post" and "the new york times," by and large. >> and it was backing up all the op-ed writing, which was all war hawkish anyway. pinkus was a great reporter. it was only in the days after we realized there was no wmds in the days after the eration that people began to write a lot of those stories in "the washington post" and say, wait a minute, all along we should have done better than this. >> but
